You may have rights, but you've got to look at this from the standpoint of is there enough evidence, and do you want to spend the time and money when it's hard to say whether it was the agent or the bank holding things up? It's a tough situation, but keep your head high and find the next one. So many people get really dragged down by these more than common scenarios, when another opportunity could be just a few days away.
I understand your frustration, but proving this type of thing is next to impossible. Like I said, just keep your head up and look for the next one so it doesn't get by. Good luck to you.
So, you were buying a short sale? made an offer.. and you are saying thte agent put in the wrong offer and the sellers agent purposely delayed your offers to have her on or others accepted?
I have to say, these things RARELY happen. I want to say NEVER happen, but never say never! Selling agents want offers.. they do not delay offers to get other offers in.. it just does not happen. There is no reason to do so.. in most cases for the little bit more that people bring in.. it is not worth the hassle.. I want offers and acceptance. period.
So, what really happened here? he bank denied the FHA offer.. o.k.. was there a better offer onthe tale? someone that had cash? The bank needs to take the best possible way for them to get paid. A lot of peole are trying to buy these properties with no money or very little down... and then want the moon in reppairs.. when they know the house is "as-is" so break it down, what happened here for real?
